I have seen them!  I bought some actually for general use in vases in the house.  They look gorgeous!  Generally they don’t do their job – ie keep your flowers hydrated!  But they would look really pretty for the day.  I found my flowers lastest about 3 days before they started to wilt in the beads, compared to over a week in normal water.

You have to soak them in water for about 18-24 hours before they fluff up to full capacity, and still need to be fairly moist in their container, but again, for your wedding day they would stay looking great so long as you watered / set them up the afternoon before

Hope this helps

This is a simpe but striking centerpiece that is DIY. Use your colors- purple gel beads, black ribbon, silver branches

Your wedding is one week after mine! I’m doing cake centerpieces so I can kill two birds with one stone. Plus it’s actually less expensive to get small 6-8″ cakes made for each table than to get flower centerpieces.  You can put them on silver chargers – plenty available at Michael’s, or you can collect “vintagey” plates or trays from thrift stores – I guess it depends on the look you’re going for.

have you thought about spraying some braches in a white and outting them in a tall glass vase?

you could find some little trinkets to hang from them tying in your other colours? also when the lights go down they would look fab and create beautiful shadows.

Submerged flowers are cheaper than a full floral centerpiece because it uses fewer stems.  I saw some inspiration in a celebrity wedding where they used glass cylinders with gold colored wire and white roses.  You can change the flower and wire to match your colors.

Of course, smaller cylinders and on a tabletop.
